#Rowing: Commercial’s senior eight were the fastest crew at the Cork Head of the River at the Marina today. The next fastest senior eight were the Shandon/Lee composite crew, but Commercial’s intermediate eight were over two seconds faster than this crew, slotting in as the second fastest crew. The head was a successful one, run in conditions which were cold but mostly calm.
